    That, my friend, was an amazing review of an incredible tablet. Can't wait to get my Surface Pro 2.

    Thanks for the kind words, I had some issues with the video clip of me playing Hydro Thunder with a controller, the audio didn't render at all 0_o

    I am was already convinced that I will get a Surface 2 but I like the idea of playing Halo with a controller. I have a hard time deciding between the surface 2 and the Lumia 2520. I am getting one either way if not both. Thanks for a great review.

    I really like the 2520, but the Surface 2 hardware and kickstand and HDMI port on it is what I love, plus the sleek keyboard cover. I didn't really dig the keyboard that I saw for the 2520. Plus the 200 GB SkyDrive :)

    I agree with everything you said. Why do people complain about a baby OS (RT)? They need to be patient and watch it grow. Also, people complain that it doesn't run full Windows 8.1. Well, they're not complaining about iPads or Androids not running Mac OSX or Linux, respectively! Only Windows 8.1.

    Good job. Not just because I am a fan of the surface. I love when fan as well as people who do not know facts or see a factual positive review.

    How do you have the Facebook live tile working? I'm running 8.1 on my OG Surface RT and it shows the tile count for my notifications but doesn't update with feed updates despite permission to run in background is enabled. Again, great review! I love seeing reviews from a users POV as opposed to biased tech corporations (gdgt, Engadget, The Verge, etc.).

    What sold me most is the USB port, wish lumias came standard with one.

    I know this is random but yeah...
    Very nice lock screen wallpaper, please upload it or give me a name so I can Google it.

    Hmm have you tried uninstalling the app and installing it again? if that doesnt work, shutdown the surface and boot it up again.

    Im glad you enjoyed the video :D

    Very nice and long review. Makes me want to buy a Surface 2. It looks and performs very good.
    I hope you will do a decent FFC image-test, especially with Skype and low-light (like MS did in the keynote) and compare the results with other devices.

    I second this review. It's a fantastic tablet. Hardware is second to none. My only gripe is the learning curve, and the number of apps available.

    Bring on the apps !

    I never knew that 200gb of SkyDrive was available with the surface!!! I thought my decision would be easy and the Nokia was a sure thing...but since it's not available in the yellow that my phone and headphones come in, I've bit a bit more on the fence!

    Bookmarking. Will watch the video later once I get home from work. I've been wanting to a Surface since the original ones were announced but I've always been keen on the Pro version. The RT has been getting good reviews though...

    I am currently uploading a 28 Min video, showing the Surface 2 multitasking, loading websites, skydrive, gaming, opening office. Its a long video, but i want people to see what the Surface 2 can really do. Enough with these journalist bashing a great device.

    Youtube is taking forever...currently at 17% -_ -

    Quick question, have you use the surface 2 outside? If so how is the readability as from watching your review (which is a great one btw ;) ). I noticed how glossy and reflective the screen was, the lack of LTE doesn't bug me - I can just get a mobile broadband adapter or a mobile hot spot or use my phone to tether..

    Edit:
    What sold me most is the USB port, wish lumias came standard with one.
    Same here but you get two with the cover :P

    Found it, got it thanks.

    Have you tried using an external cd reader plugged into the USB slot ? Did it work ?
